Poor quality education provided, and the staff do not get in a hurry to help at all, can take over a month to hear back via email, call if you need help, this school does not have an advisement office, you have to schedule an appointment with one of your professors for advisement and they may not know how to help or answer your questions, and not many professors know how to use the tech in the classroom.
